I was kind of bummed when my girls backed out at 8PM after I told them to pack their heaviest winter clothes and extra sweat shirts and pants because it was going to be windy and cold...."we had enough of ice fishing dad!" I ended up fishing alone.

It was nasty for the morning with a ripping north wind and waves breaking over half the pier making that part unfishable.  I don't think my girls would have enjoyed those conditions. I set up by the beach and picked away at the fish.  Early they came on steelie skein on the bottom.  That took the whitefish, brown trout and gold loaded steelie. When the sun came out late morning, a coho bite took off with a piece of shrimp and half nightcrawler off slip bobbers 7 ft down. Lost a couple coho's and blew my chance for a limit.  Probably my last pier trip this year now that my big girl is out of the barn.

Whitefish do not count towards the salmon limit.  You can keep 12 of them!

4 salmon and 2 whitefish is not over limit. Could have caught one more salmon or trout and 10 more whitefish. 

The steelie has this plug in his mouth with my skein down his throat.  Some angler was bummed.

Sounds like a fun day on the pier.  I remember when it was much more consistent fishing several years ago.  I had a couple seasons where I got sick of catching 1 fish every 5 trips or so and pretty much hung up the pier rods.
